In the first session, Extension Specialist David Robson will share water conservation tips and techniques, as well as information about the latest in watering equipment. Water can be a precious commodity, especially during the summer and with droughts, and WaterSmart Gardening will provide help to minimize and conserve water, while still maintaining a healthy landscape.

WaterSmart Gardening will be presented online April 26 at 1:30 p.m. and again on April 28 at 6:30 p.m. The April 26 presentation also may be viewed in the Kane County office in St. Charles. Each topic will be offered online twice, and some are available for viewing in-person at a local Extension office.

  • Backyard Greenhouse Basics on May 24 at 1:30 p.m. and May 26 at 6:30 p.m. The May 24 webinar also may be viewed in the Yorkville office.

All webinar sessions are free and open to the public to view online, but participants must register in advance at http://go.illinois.edu/4seasons_webinars.

Participants may choose to view the April 26 webinar at the U of I Extension office in St. Charles, or to view the May 24 webinar at the Extension office in Yorkville.
